lucky thirteen?

I am so antsy for a grand reveal of the kitchen.. but it is quite a few projects away.  I spent this weekend applying a lot of coats.. 10 to be exact on these puppies:
The thirteen cabinet doors we painted..and that's not even all of them.

Granted, it wouldn't be a weekend of home renovation with out a few mishaps and emotional breakdowns.  After shedding a few tears over some unexpected issues (thanks Humidity for botching layers 7-10) the Man calmed me down and reinforced my resolve.

A little before and after to see how far we've come couldn't hurt either:
before-ish
getting closer

Ah.. a little motivation.... now for reward?
Too bad I don't have any more lemon cupcakes left over from  my co-workers baby shower. I could have used one of those at about 4:00pm today.

Oh, and on a off-topic note.. at least off-topic from lemon cream cheese frosted cupcakes... *sigh*
  I was thinking today about the soundtrack of my life and I've concluded that this chapter would certainly be underscored with various beeps, pew pew pews, mouse clicks, battle sounds, and various other gaming noises peppered with
 the Man's laughter and general exclamations of badassery.

I love it...some of the best background noise ever.

And finally, it's Shark Week

Danielle,
Thank you! I doubted myself pretty often about it, but I am loving the contrast so far.

Rachel,
It is the perfect party fridge--two icemakers! It was made for margaritas. I love it and truly can't wait to show the finished result! :)
